Parker’s Heritage Collection 24 Year Bottled In Bond Kentucky Straight Bourbon
This is the 10th yearly edition of the Parker’s Heritage Collection (PHC). This year’s release features two separate Bottled in Bond (BiB) vintages, one distilled in the Fall of 1990 and the other in the Spring of 1991 at Heaven Hill’s distillery in Bardstown, Kentucky (D.S.P. KY-31), which was destroyed in 1996 by fire along with seven rickhouses and over 90,000 aging barrels. As a result, this year’s bottling is sometimes referred to as “pre-fire.” At 24 years old, it is believed to be the oldest BiB bourbon released to date by any distillery. For every bottle sold, Heaven Hill will contribute $15 to ALS research and treatment in honor of the late Parker Beam who lost a six year battle with the disease in January 2017. The bourbon in review is from the Spring 1991 batch.
